PIG IRON PRODUCTION IN MAY WAS CLOSE TO RECORD LAST OCTOBER Furnaces Made Jlemnrknble Recovery From the Big Slump in January; Stwf Furnaces Head list. Production of coke and anthracite pig iron m May was exceeded only once in the history of the American trade, that being m October, 19JG. says the Cleveland Daily Iron Trade. In the month- just ended, the pig iron production was 3,448,207 tons, compared with 3,273,3o5 tons m April, a gam of 174,852 tons. In Muy a year ago, the output was 3,113,677 tons, and in tbe banner month, October, ^thinks best, if she does not want them 1 3 16i it Wa3 3505180 tons. The recovery from the Inasmuch as one of the trunks contained a large sized fortune, .Miss 'Armstrong has decided that she wants them herself. ' Then the way the story goes, as re- 'Trealed in the papers which have been In Bits groop of three hats there ate (hree classes represented by fine examples at their kinds. There Is a graceful, soft model for street wear, Jn white and black; a dressy, picturesque affair In transparent black, and a bit of subdued gayety In a high pink, bonaettike shape made of crep« georgette. This is reserved millinery following in the wake of the modes at a modest distance from extremes. Bat each hat is n gem that wtll Dear comparison with any others of tts kind and Interesting b-ecaaso at it* iDdfrtt- nol style. In street bats there are not so many soft models, fashion havtog srrnngr toward tbe trim, sprightly, spirited styles. But there is so much class in this bit of headwenr that It can afford to be different from the majority. It is of white yedda hrald laced with black satin and has a collar of narrow, Waek satin ribbon, finished with a small bow at the back. Under the bow tbe soft crown is tacked to tho brim nnd at the front a pair of small, black wings are convincingly chic. The hat speaks French and if it were not for the war we would be sore to credit Paris with It The pretty Mack hot, with braid crown nnd brim of machine. Is a type that every woman admires and all women, young or otherwise, can wear. It has a tie of narrow satin ribbon about the base of the crown finished with a little cravat bow at the troot. Large, black velvet dolttes are flattened ont about tbe top of tbe crown ami toe point of each petal caught to the bat with a jet bead. Every summer brings Its transparent black hats, the coolest looking and most becoming at summer's millinery gifts to Tbe remaining hot Is of light, orchid- pink crepe georgette with a brim that suggests the poke bonnet, split at tbe back and taeed with silk bnjd. It hag a collar of wide, pink satin ribbon ornamented with sun- nursts of needlework in which embroidery Bine and silver tinsel thread are wed. Black and White Coitume. There Is nothing startling in a dress of black foulard with white organdie collar and caffs, yet how striking a woman can look, clad in snch, a frock If the other accessories of her costume are In keeping. A wide-brimmed model of black fonlard with white organdie with a large jet pin. Is the appropriate hat, while black docked stockings and patent leather ptunps complete the equipment of good style to bs found in this extremely smart example of the black and -white costume.
